It was the first time the UK-based magazine New Musical Express hosted their awards program in the US after nearly five decades of giving out prizes in England.

The crowd inside the historic El Rey Theatre included presenters Sienna Miller, Agyness Deyn, Kelly Osbourne, and Danny Masterson, as well as Mark Ronson, Eli Roth, and Pete Wentz. Jane's Addiction, The Lemonheads and Mick Jones all performed at the show.

Though Fall Out Boy didn't take home any awards, bassist and singer Wentz got something just as special. "I just met Alice Cooper and he knew my name!" Wentz told NME staff. "I can't believe he knew my name!" Wentz then jokingly added: "I think someone whispered it to him beforehand."

As the celebration ended at the El Rey Theatre, the stars continued to party the night away at underground Hollywood hotspot 86.

NBC's Heroes took home the Best TV Show award, while the Oscar-winning film Juno took home the Best Film award.
